Upgrade from CS3 to CS5?

I have been toying with this for a while now but am wondering if I need to upgrade from PSCS3 to CS5? In reality, I LOVE CS3 and it does everything I need it to do quickly (plenty of RAM, etc.). So for my purposes, purely photo editing/manipulation, CS3 is perfect. But, I've heard from reviews that CS5 does many things better than CS3 and has a lot of other features I do not need or would ever even use.

What are your thoughts on this?

If CS3 does all you need, why bother to update? Whats different in CS5.

LOL...

Well there are a FEW things in there that I could use! But I am not sure it is enough to justify the expense...

I'll take a look at it...

THANX!

Do you use puppet warp Wayne? Looks like a great idea, but after doing the tutorial I never tried it again.

Yes couriously enough I do, but not for it's intended purpose, I use it for "tweeking" things where I need more control than transform warp gives.
